Resource Description

Body Concept is the factual knowledge about the body, e.g., what the body parts are called; that your head is at the top; that your trunk is situated between your neck and legs; that your legs are longer than your arms. Children develop body concepts by learning the names and functions of all body parts. The successful acquisition of a body concept is dependent on a good body scheme, perceptual ability, language ability, memory, and comprehension.
